I don't understand the previous negative review We had a fantastic experience yesterday. The young woman narrator was well informed, personable, open to questions and humor. I was impressed about her presentation over the entire two hour trio, all done without any notes to refer to. She knew about everything...the coastal marine life, the history of the mansions along the... More

I was told we would see the seals and be taken to a lighthouse. We saw 2 seals from far away and they said the wind was too strong to go to the lighthouse. It was not to strong at all I believe that our trip was a training trip and they had their own agenda. There were employees on... More

Hello, I was sorry to read your review. We take your feedback very seriously and always want to make sure that our guests have an enjoyable time on the boat. I can assure you that the day in question would have been very uncomfortable going all the way out to the lighthouse (both due to higher winds....but even more important... More

Great tour! Cold on the water. Warmer in the front left of boat due to wind. Back was coldest. Earmuffs or hoodie will help from getting the wind in the ear which gave that ear ache effect.

We (myself, husband, mother in law and 8 year old son) had such a great time on this tour! We found it interesting and very scenic! This tour truly offered something for everyone in our group, which can be tricky with the varied ages. I highly recommend!

Hey it is a lobster boat. Capt. John does all the narrating and his mate helps steer the boat on occasion. He brought us out to Egg Rock Island to see the seals and bald eagles as well as the Lighthouse. We have taken this trip twice in the past 6 years.... both times the seals were on the windward...

I easily reserved this excursion on line and over the phone. We were coming off the Regal Princess cruise ship via tender and received good instructions on finding the LuLu from the tender dock. Princess offered the same excursion in the afternoon for $59.95 pp. We opted for the 10:00 am trip direct with LuLu for $32 pp (senior rate).... More

The two hour tour on Lulu was enlightening and fun! Captain John shares his vast knowledge about lobsters and the lobster industry with a twist of humor. I'll never look at a lobster the same again. In addition to pulling lobster traps we got a close up view of Egg Rock Lighthouse and seals playing in the sea. It was... More

This was such a fun and unique trip! Jim is obviously the Lobster guru of the area as he gives lectures all over the country about lobsters. I was impressed at how the state of Maine controls the lobster fishing business. He started by telling us the history of the area and the lobster industry and how things have changed.... More
